When you tell folks you live in Florida, they think beaches and constant sunshine. They don’t think about rainy days, thunder, lightening or even cold weather.
Yes, in the northern part of Florida, we have cold weather. It’s a different kind of cold, though. It’s damp and seeps into your bones. The chill just never goes away.
Anyway, I am preparing for that cold weather when I walk my dog this winter. I made a wool hat, wool mittens and wool cowl. I may make my dog a sweater or maybe just get a sweatshirt from the Goodwill and “adjust” it to fit her.
These should help with the cold and chill this winter.
ETA: OMG! How could I forget!?!?!?! For those of you who knit, this Baa-ble Hat is a free pattern on Ravelry. I used the graph to add the sheep to the mittens and the cowl. The mittens are basic mittens (c/o of 40 sts; US 4 needles) and the cowl uses the same number of stitches as the hat, after the increase (120 sts); only it is knit on larger needles (US 9).
